DDR3 vs DDR3L Memory

Hello,
I just got a new laptop.  It's a an HP Zbook.  My previous computer was an HP Elitebook 8560w.  I have 32 gigs of ram from my old computer and I want to know if I can use it in my new one.  

Here are the memory specs for my new computer, the Zbook
DDR3L 1.35V SDRAM (1600 MHz)

Here are the memory specs for my old computer, the Elitebook
DDR3 PC3-10600 SDRAM (1333 MHz)

Can I use the old ram in my new computer?  Will there be any negative consequences?

Thanks,
Kyel

Yes there will be negative consequences. If it's specified that your hardware needs DDR3L, you REALLY do need DDR3L memory, and not just plain DDR3.

There shouldn't be any negative consequences... (BUT THERE COULD BE).  And it won't work - your old RAM requires too much power.

hmmm...two answers with two contradictory statements...I guess I don't feel so bad now about not being able to find a definitive answer on Google.

I guess I'll buy new memory just to be safe.
